Op Wolf

Will they be releasing Operation Wolf on the Wii Shopping Channel? That would be very cool.............

£20 seems like a good price.

Different rates of fire are possible too.

Presumably by repeatedly depressing the trigger button at variable rates...?

Yay!

I'm so very excited! £20 is a really decent price, though I must admit, the Link's Crossbow Training is what really excites me.

Nice, but

I'd be happier if they worked on boosting the console supply across Europe, I can't find one on the high street for love nor money!

A lump of plastic?

Well technically its just a lump of plastic that you slide in your Wiimote and nunchuck into. A bit expensive for it too.

This should go nicely with my MAME Arcade Cabinet tho - I've got my Wiimote connected to the MAME PC via bluetooth, running the classic shooty Arcade title called Point Blank.

Now I wonder if u can buy the zapper separately from the Zelda game?

.

>The Zapper also relays re-positioning movements, ....

No, its the Wiimote that does this on its own, it does it separately for all games on the Wii don't you know!

.

I'd wager that this thing will end up being superceded by somebodys homebrew project - made out of resin or something. I want mine looking like an AK47, not a Steyr Aug. Step to it.

@Stu

The Zapper looks like a Steyr AUG about as much as a Derringer looks like a Desert Eagle.

I'll agree about the Zapper being superceded by a homebrew (or alternative third-party) housing, though. The chunk-of-plastic look doesn't do it for me, and it seems like the same is true for many others as well.

Neat

I so hope my friend gets this. :P I wouldn't mind giving it a go! PARTICULARLY IF IT WERE MODDED TO BE AN M4 CARBINE!

Great fun in perspective

At the condition that they put out a game where you can hunt today's politicians from every country. Could be a very cultural game, you know. Chasing after the Queen in the stately halls of Buckingham Palace, gunning down Sarkozy under the Eiffel Tower, or blasting Dubya to bits in a pretzel parlor.

If they make a game like that, I'll buy a Wii with all the accessories, just for that game. Promise !

Get real......

Looks like a Steyr Aug? No...looks like a lump of cheap plastic.

Point Blank

All we need now is for someone to port Namco's awesome "Point Blank" (but not "Point Blank II" cos it was too hard! ;). Also a new version of NES Duck Hunt - preferably where you can shoot your pesky dog and, perhaps, hen harriers?

Only £20 too - good stuff. Along with Guitar Hero III, I reckon this will have Wii's flying off the shelves this Xmas!
